Please Welcome John Brandon to the Team

By Jason Priestas on September 10, 2013 at 5:37p
John Brandon, ladies and gentlemen.

We're thrilled to announce the addition of John Brandon to the team as the Helfand Distinguished Raconteur-Scholar Intern for the fall semester.

Although John hails from the Mitten State, he had the good sense to choose to attend The Ohio State University, where he's now a freshman.

John will assist Kyle on the beat, along with helping out on the recruiting front and a few other places. He can be found on Twitter at @JBrandon11W.

Our intern is your intern, so please feel free to place any coffee and donuts orders you have at this time.

Welcome, John!

The premium lounge is out of triple ply toilet paper.  Oh and welcome.

Is it safe to assume that this freshman has had his black stripe removed since he's now a member of the team?

Jason Priestas's picture

He's still rocking the black stripe until his first piece goes live. Tune in tomorrow night.

haha yep, I have a brother named David too, so believe me he takes plenty of grief!  But fortunately there is no relation between my family and TTUN's AD

Welcome aboard John.
Which reminds me by the way, the Premium Club Gents rooms need restocked.

John Brandon's picture

I'm working on it as we speak

Hovenaut's picture

You're on your way.....


Unky Buck's picture

Congrats, John. In the Premium Club Gents room that Hove says needs restocked, you will also need to restock the Sex Panther cologne. Jason's been using the hell out of that stuff...but who wouldn't when 60% of the time it works every time?

It's a formidable scent.....

Unky Buck's picture

Kind of stings the nostrils. Actually, we should probably tell Jason that it smells like pure gasoline.

Not to put any pressure on you, son but the Buckeyes are 14-0 since Kyle Rowland was hired.
Hopefully on your first day you will do better than Reeves.
